Linux Complaining about Windows Vista is a national past time on Internet forums these days. Windows Vista 'costs too much', 'has onerous product activation', 'requires too much hardware', etc. These complaints are often followed up by a very simple boast: 'I'm just going to switch to Linux'. But in today's landscape, how viable is that statment? Is the threat to switch to Linux an empty one, or is it entirely possible?"

Worry about what? if the idiot is cocking up their Windows installation, its going to be the same idiot who will cock up their Linux installation - same lyrics, different tempo.

I'd like to meet the idiot who cocked up my Windows installation, but I doubt anyone at Microsoft would have the cojones to own up. So I loaded Linux and have never looked back.

You make or break your own computer - Bill Gates doesn't sneak in at night, through your window, to stuff up your computer

No, he gets PC company employees to do it for him by preloading Windows.
